    1. I feel that you need to make improvement in Marketplace by putting separate sub-forums each for WTS, WTB, WTH, etc. This will make it more user friendly.

    2. JOKES section should be added.

    3. Referral feature should also be added wherein one can get 5 Netbucks for referring a person to this forum. Once that new member contributes 50 posts then the referral gets additional 50 Netbucks. Also, if that new member gets a 1st positive iTrader then the referral should be credited with additional 100 Netbucks.

    4. In case a successful deal happens then that entry should be shown in light colour in Marketplace so that one will know that deal is closed.

    5. Premium listing should be added in Marketplace wherein the post will remain on top. One can charge a small fee also ( preferably Netbucks ) for the same.

    6. In order to improve the quality of the forum and eliminate spam, 5 Netbucks should be awarded to the member who first points out the spam.

    IF any of my above suggestions are accepted then I should be credited with 500 Netbucks

    I agree about the marketplace being inactive. It needs to get buffed.

    1. If we add separate sub forums for WTB,WTS etc the market place will look too inactive.

    2. We already have a jokes thread I don't really see the need for a whole sub forum on it.

    3. There is a referral program all ready I am pretty sure.

    4. You are able to lock your own thread if you want to under thread tools.

    5. I don't really see why anyone should get a better chance than anyone else by paying and the market place is still small enough that your thread doesn't go down very far.

    6. At the moment there isn't a lot of spam and I think that if you start paying Net Bucks for people reporting posts I think that there will be a huge influx in reported posts that aren't really that bad. IMHO

    Invite some of the people you made positive deals with. It will help

    You can filter categories (bottom of the page)

    There is one thread that isn't active enough to create a forum for it.

    3. Referral feature should also be added wherein one can get 5 Netbucks for referring a person to this forum.

    That's already the case (referrals). The iTrader thing can be abused to easily so that's a no.

    4. In case a successful deal happens then that entry should be shown in light colour in Marketplace so that one will know that deal is closed.
    Just a 'lock' icon is fine IMO

    5. Premium listing should be added in Marketplace wherein the post will remain on top. One can charge a small fee also ( preferably Netbucks ) for the same.
    We should not think about other forums, although it's a nice suggestion. But for the people watching the BST section it isn't necesarry yet. Once it gets more views every second, it could be an idea yes.

    6. In order to improve the quality of the forum and eliminate spam, 5 Netbucks should be awarded to the member who first points out the spam.
    A points-per-report should be cool indeed, but than I'm more thinking about a 'reporter of the month', 'poster of the month' where every 'X of the month' will get a $NB reward (take 250 or 500 for example as a thanks).

    IF any of my above suggestions are accepted then I should be credited with 500 Netbucks

    True. You, me and many others can help it by inviting more service buyers/providers

    Half true imho, if we get more buyers we'll surely get more sellers.

    This would create a bunch of useless inactive forums and a very complicated structure, specially when we don't have enough traffic there.

    We can consider that under "General Chat" if we see enough threads with those.

    We already reward those referrals. Please refer to http://www.netbuilders.org/announcements-suggestions/netbucks-official-thread-8175.html for further info.

    That is an interesting idea, I think we might have to search for some mod for that.

    Not really, we're trying to get rid of that "Elite" concept.

    I do reward those "spam reporters" once in a while, yet, I don't think we should "rule" that, the same way we don't "rule" bad behaviors.

    Sellers not to invest some time in order to be successful. First, sellers need to monitor their threads and respond in a timely manner. Second, sellers need to have some patience. Third, sellers need to build their reputation so that they attract buyers. Marketplaces on other forums weren't built in a day.
